The City feels that the race became too disruptive and placed too much stress on the community and therefore can longer support our effort to present this event. In these four years we were grateful and proud to be able to produce a top flight road race to the City with all the ancillary benefits to the community, among them the charitable beneficiaries and of course the runners. These however didn’t outweigh the accompanying concerns. We are saddened by this, but we need to respect the process and move on.
Toward that end, our vision of providing a high quality athletic event that promotes health and fitness, as well as goal setting and achievement is still a priority and therefore we are pleased to say that we are in final stages of coming to an agreement with another community to host this event for this coming March. It would be pre-mature to make any official announcement at this time until the final permitting process is complete, but due to the time in the running calendar and the many inquiries from the running public, we felt we needed to address this and update all concerned. We expect to present a pre-Boston prep half marathon the third Sunday in March, it just won’t be in Quincy.
Our many thanks to all those who did support our efforts in the City of Presidents, too many to mention here, we are grateful to you all and wish you all the best down the road.
Expect an announcement in the coming weeks on our new venue. We are aware that various runners deferred their status due to unanticipated circumstances last year and we are working to address that situation in particular with coordination with this new event. If there are any concerns along these lines please direct your questions to: email@example.com
